The Immaculate Conception of Love

Couple in LoveIn the beginning there was light — before there was sun. There were trees and plants before there were seeds. And man appeared before there was the physical act of sexual consummation. This immaculate conception of the first man appears in the book of Genesis in the Old Testament. In the beginning was the word and all else was created from that.

The immaculate conception, the spiritual birth without human physical contact, of Jesus Christ, appears in the New Testament. According to Wikipedia, the gospels of Matthew and Luke, “later tradition and current doctrine present Jesus’ conception as a miracle involving no natural father, no sexual intercourse and no male seed in any form, but instead brought about by the Holy Spirit.” What is the holy spirit if not a spiritual force emanating from the consciousness of God.

Extrapolating from these two biblical references and adding some current definitions, I present the concept that our consciousness creates our own immaculate conception. In other words, the ideas we have, our views and beliefs, our perceptions and theories, our models of the world we live in, and our unique understanding and comprehension, actually brings into fruition the reality that appears all around us.

Here are some definitions and synonyms of each part of: The Immaculate Conception of Love

  • Immaculate: perfect, pure, impeccable and flawless
  • Conception: beginning, origin, formation, idea, perception, view, belief, model, understanding
  • Love: feeling, fondness, attraction, tenderness, devotion, passion, ardor, care for, enjoy

In this view of love, not unlike the currently popular Law of Attraction, love begins in our consciousness. Sometimes,love begins beneath the screen of our conscious awareness. We may feel a bodily sensation, the stirring of an emotion, a subtle message from our body, or even a fleeting thought. We may not instantly interpret the signal as love.

The words that were brought to us from the teachings of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, in ancient Greece, “Know Thyself,” are actually the cornerstone of the ability to create true and lasting immaculate love in your life.

Love, unconditional and immaculate love, is an overall sense of appreciation, caring for and unwavering devotion toward the object of that love. It begins in our mind, our consciousness, as a thought. The power lies in the type of thought. Thoughts that are pure, flawless and impeccable focus only on the beauty, the depth and the potential love that is present in every one of us. Pure and flawless, immaculate love, does not focus on flaws and inadequacies and expectations. The object, the goal, the desire and the need is to give and share and nurture and honor the object of one’s love.

Immaculate conception requires holding a pure and flawless concept of love, with the deep conviction and unwavering trust that love is all there is. Holding on to such an immaculate conception of love cannot help but bring that love into existence in the material world. We have all heard the expression: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.’ View the other person as beautiful and in your eyes, that person is beautiful. View the other person as pure love, and in your eyes the other person will be and become pure love.

Problem is, there is this phenomenon that was talked about by Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy. It goes something like this.:”Love brings up anything unlike itself for the purpose of release and healing.” Armed with that awareness, are YOU ready to conceive immaculate love in your life. The power actually comes from within you. Nobody else can do it for you and the object of your immaculate love may kick and scream and fight to the end, testing your fortitude and capability of sustaining pure love.

  1. Hi Dr. Erica,

    Being an evolutionist, your opening put me off. Yet, I like to give a listen to alternative views. Glad I did. This is a sweet and thoughtful post.

    Liked how you linked immaculate love with nonjudgmental acceptance. For me, true love never demands.

    • Ed,

      I am not a bible fanatic. I just get inspired and write about what it is that inspired me. And I love the realization that love can be pure, love is pure, when it involves acceptance, allowance, understanding and room for growth – without unfair demands and expectations. Thanks for staying with the post and for sharing your honest perspective.

  2. Hi Erica

    What an awesome post and I see how this concept was what made Adam love Eve as soon as she existed in the world. Love from within is just so powerful.

    Thanks for sharing. Take Care

    • Ikechi,

      You certainly know about loving from within. You provide so much support for other people as you read and comment on their work and I am sure this is your way of operating in the world. Giving love to others definitely brings it back to our self.

  3. I loved your post. One of my takeaways was when you said “Pure and flawless, immaculate love, does not focus on flaws and inadequacies and expectations.” It’s so simple but yet can be hard to do sometimes. I’m striving to be more like Him.

    • Tina,

      The real key is to not focus on flaws within yourself. When you free yourself from personal judgement, you become so much more accepting of others and they feel that strongly. So then they become less judgemental of you. It becomes like a boomerang. And – those who are not ready to reciprocate become blaringly obvious and you can step back and not be so affected by them – and from a distance feel that unconditional love for them.

  4. You have such immense passion for your subject, Erica. I love coming here and reading your posts. I think love escapes a good lot of us. I believe most of that is caused by us not loving ourselves enough first.

    Enjoy the journey!

    • Mandy,
      We all want to love and be loved. When we are young and our hormones are flowing, that desire can feel like love. And we may love. But what happens over the years is that the passion wears off and we are left with the real human beings in our life. And sometimes, often, we are not so happy with what we see. It looks as if the other person is to blame when they are just here to help us learn how to love. And it always boils down to loving our self first.

      Happy New Year,
